Dunepedia

This Page in BriefThis Page in Brief:

Use templates to illustrate a particular point about an article's state by copy and pasting them onto the necessary page. This page acts as a guide for where templates should be used and how.

The following is a list of Templates on Dunepedia, with explanations of what the template below is, and where it should be placed on a page. Templates are to be copied and pasted onto a page where they are relevant. All templates must be within a single column, single row, transparent, fit to page table.
Templates are fitted into two categories, Banners (long rectangular information strips with accompanying image), and images (pictures, placed in transparent boxes.) These two categories of templates are again divided into three more categories, those for articles making proclamations, those for articles in need of improvement, and those that have been rewarded.

This article is self-contradictory, meaning that it states something to be true, and then contradicts that statement.
